Accused Drunk Driver Does Cartwheels During Sobriety Test

A 23-year-old New Mexico woman was arrested Friday night on DWI charges after she kept doing cartwheels even after Albuquerque cops told her to stop.

Early Friday evening, officers got reports of a black Volkswagon sedan driving recklessly. They discovered Bryelle Marshall passed out behind the wheel in a vehicle matching that description in the same area at around 6:45 p.m. The sedan was parked partially in a roadway and in the driveway to a trailer park, according to a department release.

Marshall woke up when officers started speaking to her and asked her to get out of her vehicle. Officers said she seemed extremely intoxicated, kept stumbling and smelled of alcohol. She also had a difficult time listening to officers commands. When a DWI officer gave her instructions on how to complete the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs), Marshall responded by doing cartwheels in front of officers.

The video above shows Marshall performing cartwheels at least two times, falling to the ground at least once, and giggling throughout the whole encounter.

Her actions clearly frustrate the officer. After Marshall struck an officer during a cartwheel, the officers’ patience ran out and she was arrested, according to the release. Marshall was charged with battery, aggravated DWI and for an expired license plate.

She was released from the Metropolitian Detention Center the next day.
